CHICAGO — Residents who want to clean up their neighborhood this month can get free help from the city.
The city is hosting a Clean and Green Day of Service on April 24. It’s asking residents to participate by doing things like collecting litter, removing weeds and cleaning up vacant lots in their communities, according to a Mayor’s Office news release.
Individual residents and groups who want to participate can get brooms, rakes, shovels and bags from the city for their cleaning projects. To sign up, identify a place where you’ll work and then call your local alderman’s office or 311 to register your volunteer project.
Registration ends Monday.
